Working in partnership with the Executive Head, Heads of School and staff, Governors ensure high standards of achievement for the young people in the two schools. Governors have four core strategic functions delegated to us by The Abingdon Learning Trust Board:

Terms of Reference for the Board and Committees can be found as PDF documents on this page.
The Governing body is made up of people who have a common passion for providing the best education for children in their schools. Parents and staff are specifically represented on the governing body, whilst other governors are appointed by the Trust to ensure a wide breadth of skills, experience and viewpoints to enable the governing body collectively to support and challenge the school leadership.
The Scheme of Delegation sets out the delegated powers between the different bodies involved in the governance and operation of the Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and its constituent schools.
